Truro Daily News - - SPORTS -

BROOK­FIELD, N.S. – There’s a new cham­pion in the Shoot­ers Bar and Grill Fast­pitch League. The Shu­bie Li­ons won the ti­tle last Saturday af­ter an 8-1 vic­tory over three-time reign­ing cham­pion White Rock Rock­ies in the fi­nal of the league’s cham­pi­onship tour­na­ment. The Li­ons went un­de­feated in three games at the dou­ble­knock­out event. They opened with a 3-1 win over the Rock­ies on Thurs­day, and blanked the reg­u­lar-sea­son cham­pion Hal­i­fax Pep­per­jacks 8-0 on Saturday to punch their ticket to the fi­nal.

Credit the Rock­ies for a gutsy ef­fort. Af­ter drop­ping their first game to the Li­ons, White Rock rhymed off three straight Saturday wins to earn a spot in the gold-medal game.

The Brook­field Elks posted a 1-2 record. The Elks de­feated the Prodigy Red Sox 3-1 on Friday, be­fore a 6-1 set­back to the Pep­per­jacks later in the evening. Brook­field’s cham­pi­onship hopes came to an end af­ter a 7-2 loss to the Rock­ies on Saturday.
